BE THOU MY VISION
CANADA DAY PRAYER
Thank you, God, for this piece of the world called Canada,
a slice of land broad and wide, blessed with rivers and great lakes,
wide skies and great forests, high mountains and gracious plains,
beautiful from sea to sea to sea.
Thank you for letting us live in this land, even though we do not own it;
this land is your land, which we use in trust for future generations.
Thank you for its rich history,
which includes the Inuit and Aboriginal and Metis peoples.
We pray for justice and wisdom as we work on difficult
and abusive relationships with First Peoples.
Thank you for our system of government,
for the right to speak freely, and to elect our leaders.
Thank you for the freedom of religion and conscience that we enjoy.
Thank you for universal health care,
and a social safety net, even though not all are caught by it,
and not all dwell in safety.
We want a country that is the best it can be,
a home for all, welcoming refugees and newcomers,
sharing this wealthy country with the world.
Bless our leaders, our Prime Minister and all members of parliament;
guide their steps, and empower us to use our voice to help them
as they make difficult and far-reaching decisions.
We thank you today for our home and native land--
thank you for giving us a home here, where we live in peace and security.
God keep our land, Canada, keep it strong and free,
keep it safe and beautiful for future generations.
CONGRATULATIONS OLIVET GRADUATES!
GRADE 5 GRADUATION: ISABEL LEE
A practice we have done at Olivet for our 5th grade graduates is to give them a Bible and have their parents write a letter inside. This is something we all have found so meaningful. This year Isabel Lee is graduating; here is a message from her dad Yuet Chi.
